Small Ways to Save Money This 2015

Everyone is looking for ways to save money. Some need to save a lot while some just need to save a little for an immediate need. Whether you need to save for your kids' future or for a purchasing goal in mind, here's a list of simple practices to try.

1. Don't snob the leftovers. Whether you have leftover food from eating out or leftovers from cooking at home, don't throw them away or feed them to your pets. Eat them the next day. It will prevent you from wasting food because you won't need to buy more groceries. It will also help clean out the fridge so mold doesn't grow.

2. Drink less soda and lattes. They can be very useful when you need to keep yourself awake and finish a lot of work. However, they're not good for your health. Drink water. It's healthy and free.

3. Buy off season clothes. Stores mark their off season clothes at deep discounts. Mentally it can be hard to buy a winter coat when it's 80 degrees out, but financially this is a smart idea. If they don't have your size of some things, buy bigger. For items like pants that can be easily hemmed, you'll save money in the long run and have a great pair of pants for pennies on the dollar (including tailoring work) when it gets cooler again.
